[My 2 Cents]
I didn't have a can of Rotel on hand so I used a can of diced tomatoes and it was the perfect substitution.

    I love this recipe! My whole extended family makes it now. However, I’m now watching my intake and especially aware of carbs. The nutrition values on this say there are 3 carbs per serving. That can’t be possible with a can of black beans and a can of corn. I also came up with a total of 2329 cal which comes out to 387 cal per serving. That’s using full fat cream cheese. I usually use neufchatel cr cheese which would be fewer calories. But I still LOVE it!

      Hi Vicki, thanks so much for stopping by and I’m so happy to hear that you and your extended family are enjoying the recipe! I really appreciate you bringing the nutritional info for this recipe to my attention. I’ve made some corrections, and it should be more accurate now! Thanks again!

    I tried this tonight and the grand kids loved it suggested I put it on Fajita wraps with the sour cream…may just try that it is nice because I happened to have everything needed in the kitchen and did not have to purchase anything now I will make sure all ingredients are in the the kitchen for the days Whats for dinner and this is great since the chicken can be frozen. Next time I will have to double …Thanks for this recipe

      I’m so glad to hear that your grand kids loved this recipe Joyce! Putting it on Fajita wraps is a great idea, and something that I want to try now too!

    1. Yvonne

      I’ve never frozen it so I’m not 100% sure, you could try a little bit of it and see how it reheats before freezing a whole batch!

  3. Michelle

    I have thawed chicken breasts….can I just adjust the cook time for UN-frozen chicken? Do you have a recommended time?

  4. Lorraine

    Love, love this recipe. Make it for all functions and friends in need of a meal. Always use low fat cream cheese and can’t tell the difference.

    1. Yvonne

      Hello! I’m sure it would work just fine – I can’t see why it would make too big of a difference. Try it out and let me know how it works!

    I have a new electric pressure cooker and decided to give this a whirl. It was done in 15 minutes. Easiet recipe ever! And amazingly delicious!! Definitely a new favorite!

  6. Lisa

    Absolutely wonderful and so easy to make you don’t even have to remember to take the chicken out of the freezer!!! I make this at least twice a month and i have to double the recipe.

  7. Crystal

    I made this tonight. It was so good and the easiest crock pot meal ever. Since it didn’t have very many ingredients I gave this uncooked meal to some of my friends for Christmas. It was a hit!

    Oh my goodness- this looks divine!!! I LOVE slow cooker recipes . . . I might have to add this to my menu this week! :) Thank you for the delicious recipe!
